Worship leaders are welcome to use this hymn in services, but please flatter me by letting me know that you are using it. Email me! I wrote the tune Perkins for this hymn.
Is the love transfigured me:
Sweet the chalice overflowing,
Sweet the feast out-spread for me.
Tears have fed me, over-welling
Day and night, a bitter stream
Deep to deep my soul was calling:
Deep my need, my hope, my dream.
How then steals this joy upon me,
Unfamiliar but most real?
O, this cross, a living fruit-tree,
Blooms triumphant! Perfect meal!
Is the love of God, my soul.
Sweet, God's chalice overflowing;
Sweet, the feast that makes me whole.
